Paris Saint-Germain part ways with manager Christophe Galtier

Paris Saint-Germain, the Ligue 1 champions, on Wednesday announced the exit of manager Christophe Galtier after a drawn-out process to reach a contract termination agreement.

Galtier had arrived at PSG ahead of the 2022-23 season on a two-year deal however, the 56-year-old spent just one season with the club and had to leave it with still one year left on his deal.

“At the end of the 2022-2023 season, Paris Saint-Germain informed Christophe Galtier of its decision to terminate his contract as first-team coach. The Club would like to pay tribute to his professionalism and commitment, which helped the Rouge et Bleu win a historic eleventh French Championship title and a Trophee des Champions,” the club said in a statement.

Under Galtier’s guidance, PSG won their 11th Ligue 1 title, becoming the most successful club in the history of the French Championship however, he faced massive criticism after another early exit from Champions League.

Meanwhile, the development comes at a very difficult time for Galtier as he was taken into custody last Friday as a part of an investigation into alleged psychological harassment and racial discrimination.

As per reports, Luis Enrique is set to be named as PSG’s new manager after Galtier’s exit.
